What are Far Infrared Rays?
Far Infrared Ray are waves of energy, invisible to the naked eye, that exists in abundance around us. They are capable of penetrating deep layers of the human body, reaching inner-most regions of tissues, muscles and bone. They gently elevate the body's surface temperature (107.6F/42 celsius and above, enables destruction of cancer cells), and activate major bodily functions.
Far Infrared therapy (FIR) involves the utilization of Far Infrared rays to gently heal, soothe, stimulate and detox the physical body, as well as the mind.
Discovery of Far Infrared Technology
In September of 1962, President John F. Kennedy laid down the challenge for America: to be the first country to make it to the moon by the end of the decade. The vision was to advance as the leading space-faring nation on the planet and to prove the country's technological superiority.
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) was charged with this seemingly overwhelming task. The project wasn't as simple as just sending a ship to the moon, the major problem was making sure that the crew stayed alive. There was also the risk of contamination: what if the astronauts brought back undocumented microbes, viruses, or disease from Space? NASA feared for the safety of its astronauts and the possible contamination issue.
A huge amount of budget was spent on research on the human immune system. It was during this time that NASA discovered the tremendous healing potential of Far Infrared Rays (FIR).
NASA studies showed that in the infrared radiation spectrum, light in the 8-14 micron range penetrates the human body the most effectively. When far infrared rays (FIR) set at this frequency range are used during therapy, the result is that the rays are able to penetrate into the layers of the body and thus radically improve the effectiveness of its healing properties. This is the optimal frequency to produce the heat necessary to expand capillaries and increase blood circulation.
The thermal effect within the body causes blood vessels in capillaries to dilate resulting in increased blood circulation. This in turn helps facilitate the removal of toxins and metabolic wastes in the body. FIR produces heat in the body that is harmless and targeted to deeply penetrate that raises body temperature. All of this strengthens the immune system. This also relieves the muscles, rehabilitates movement impairment, soothes pain and promotes muscle tissue repair. Toxins become clumps, or globules, and block circulation in the capillaries and then cellular energy becomes impaired. The strong thermal energy of FIR causes globules to vibrate and break apart, releasing encapsulated gases and other toxic materials and pushes them back into the blood stream where they are removed naturally in a form of natural detoxification of the body.
In a two-year clinical trial that NASA spearheaded along with medical partners, cancer patients undergoing bone marrow or stem cell transplants were given a far infrared light treatment to treat oral mucositis -- a common and extremely painful side effect of chemotherapy and radiation treatment. The trial concluded that there is a 96 percent improvement in pain of those in the high-risk patient group.
